this poem is brought to you by ritchiepoems international
ritchiepoems: sufficiency, several kinds of bananas, delivery
ritchiepoems, since 1792, for your every poem need

drudgery labor babies toil art angels
the thing people note about wines is they can be like children
you lay them down again and again and hope they age into glory
some people trust educational systems
gyroscopic properties or magnetism
but come what may we all mature
there's no measure or standard in being grown up
when you open the bottle it could be there's nothing but thin-ness and vinegar
wine wrought iron and winged goddesses
require care
and a deft touch with the tannins and hammers

David Ritchie,
Portland, Oregon
